    Had chance to visit this place with permission so living down the road i thought it was worth popping in. The Old Nick was the original police station in Gainsborough. It is an Italianate-style Grade II building at the junction of Spring Gardens and Cross Street - just above the vehicular access to Marshall's Yard. Back in 1859 land on this site was sold to build a Magistrates' Court and Police Station. These buildings served their purpose until 1972 when the new police station on Morton Terrace was built followed by the new Magistrates' Court on Church Street in 1978. The court room is now the main theatre, still can see the main structure but they were practising for a show so no great photos, again with the judges rest room, its the costume room.

    Down stairs though, pretty untouched are the cells, interview room, doctors room, check in desk and exercise yard.

    I'm assuming it's the "your not going to fuck about with or break this" model!

    Well it's in a cell if I'm not mistaken. So it looks like me like it has been designed so you can't get to the pipework or cistern innards. I imagine having to move a prisoner because he has torn the lead pipe off the bog would be annoying.

    If I'm totally wrong here someone please correct me!

    The exercise yard look cool, the bog does look heavy duty and anti tamper which cant be said of the electrical wiring by the looks of it, you were lucky to see this mate, thanks for sharing it.
